Yes, we’re experts in flagging and traffic control, but we’re so much more.
Surely, you’ve seen our fleet of branded trucks. Filled with signage, cones, delineators, and barriers, our trucks are commandeered by a team of certified lane control technicians who work with dispatchers and flaggers to minimize a project’s impact on traffic. All over Vancouver Island, Metro Vancouver, and the Okanagan, our team ensures safe passage for pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles around project sites with minimal interruptions to the community.
